This article proposes a switching anti-windup strategy for linear, time-invariant (LTI) systems subject to asymmetric actuator saturation and L2 -disturbances, the core idea behind which is to make full use of the available range of control input space by switching among multiple anti-windup gains. The asymmetrically saturated LTI system is converted to a switched system with symmetrically saturated subsystems, and a dwell time switching rule is presented to govern the switching between different antiwindup gains. Based on multiple Lyapunov functions, we derive sufficient conditions for guaranteeing the regional stability and weighted L2 performance of the closed-loop system. The switching anti-windup synthesis that designs a separate anti-windup gain for each subsystem is cast as a convex optimization problem. In comparison with the design of a single anti-windup gain, our method can induce less conservative results since the asymmetric character of the saturation constraint is fully utilized in the switching anti-windup design. Two numerical examples, and an application to aeroengine control (the experiments are conducted on a semiphysical test bench), demonstrate the superiority and practicality of the proposed scheme.
